The Public Health Foundation of India (PHFI) is working towards building a healthier India. It is helping to address the limited institutional and systems capacity in India by strengthening education and training, advancing research and technology and facilitating policy and practice in the area of Public Health. PHFI is headquartered in New Delhi with national presence through its constituent units of regional Indian Institutes of Public Health (IIPHs) and Centers of Applied Research in core public health themes. The Foundation, established in 2006 as a public private initiative, is governed by an independent board comprising of senior government officials, eminent Indian and International academic and leaders, civil society representatives and corporate leaders.
The Health Promotion Division of PHFI in collaboration with the Ministry of Health and Family Welfare, Government of India (MoHFW-GoI) and London School of Hygiene and Tropical Medicine (LSHTM) is undertaking research study “Evaluating Implementation of a Peer Educator Programme for Improving Adolescent Health under India’s National Adolescent Health Programme i.e Rashtriya Kishor Swasthya Karyakram (RKSK)”. The study has been approved for funding by Medical Research Council (MRC) and Department for International Development (DFID). The study will provide research evidence needed to effect real and practical changes to improve adolescent health. The lessons learnt from this research would inform scale up of Rashtriya Kishor Swasthya Karyakram (RKSK) components in India. The study would be undertaken in two states of Madhya Pradesh and Maharashtra.
